Description (last modified by jdreed) (diff)

gPXE is not what we want here, because it's often the PXE server that's sad or hosed. I have a script that hacks together a USB-bootable stage-1 installer, and hotline has been using it for a while. I'll clean it up and throw it in the release locker or something.

So, \exists /mit/debathena/mini-installer, with the same images. I have no idea where the source is, however.
